After nearly two years as interim director of the Imperial County Arts Council, Nan Rebik has been dismissed from her post.
Board president Clyde Shields would not give reasons for Rebik's dismissal. He did say the board will immediately advertise for another director.
Rebik said Saturday a personality conflict with board members contributed to her dismissal.
She had been interim executive director since Mitjl Capet left in mid-1999. She was officially dismissed Tuesday.
Under her direction, the council expanded its highly successful Mostly Theatre Company-sponsored summer drama program by including summer offerings in music, storytelling and visual art.
Rebik initiated the "Friday Night at the Old Post Office Pavilion," a weekly open microphone night the council sponsors.
"I really enjoyed the work that I did with the Arts Council," Rebik said. "I thought the Arts Council was doing more every day."
